Common Sense: The Unabridged and Complete Edition (Thomas Paine Classics)

Global Publishers

Indisponible
Common Sense is a 47-page pamphlet written by Thomas Paine in 1775–1776
advocating independence from Great Britain to people in the Thirteen Colonies.
Writing in clear and persuasive prose, Paine collected various moral and
political arguments to encourage common people in the Colonies to fight for
egalitarian government. It was published anonymously on January 10, 1776, at
the beginning of the American Revolution, and became an immediate sensation.
It was sold and distributed widely and read aloud at taverns and meeting
places. In proportion to the population of the colonies at that time (2.5
million), it had the largest sale and circulation of any book published in
American history. As of 2006, it remains the all-time best-selling American
title and is still in print today.
